Praise

“The Love Con is a laugh-out-loud, tropetastic, sexy love-letter to fandom, women’s geek culture, and everyone who’s ever been unapologetically passionate about something. With friends-to-lovers, fake-dating, mutual pining, and the most delicious steam, this book makes for a fantastic read. I cannot wait for what Seressia Glass writes next!”Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis

“From pop-culture costume mashups to off-the-chart chemistry, Seressia Glass’s The Love Con is a winner! Kenya is a body-positive, authentic woman following her dreams, no matter what anyone thinks.”Julia London, New York Times bestselling author of You Lucky Dog  

“Smart, sexy, and unputdownable. The Love Con will have pros and novices alike ready to don their favorite costumes and immerse themselves in this fun cosplay romance.”Farrah Rochon, USA Today bestselling author of The Boyfriend Project

The Love Con is a laugh out loud delight! Seressia Glass takes the reader on a romantic ride full of intense emotions and high sexual chemistry. Even when the story is done, Kenya and Cam will still have a hold on your heart.”Kwana Jackson, USA Today bestselling author of Real Men Knit

“Glass’ sharp wit sparkles in The Love Con as we root for Kenya and Cameron in the finals of a reality cosplay competition. Fake relationship, check. Slow burn, check. A satisfying romance full of heart, heck yes! This fun romance is sure to enthrall geeks and non-geeks alike.”—Roselle Lim, author of Vanessa Yu’s Magical Paris Tea Shop

Set against the excitement of a cosplay reality show backdrop, their slow burn romance was a perfect balance of laughter, heartwarming moments and heat.”—Sara Desai, author of The Dating Plan

The Love Con is an unabashed love letter to geekdom and female fan culture, while also refusing to ignore the dark side of geek culture and the challenges female fans, especially female fans of color, must face. Friends to lovers is a difficult needle to thread as a trope, but Glass executes it with an abundance of steaminess and heart, proving that the best way to create an iconic duo is to be true to your heart.”Entertainment Weekly
